Track Name: Lament
Lament
Music: N. Da Silva
Lyrics: S. Westbrook/N. Da Silva

No tears for the suicide – of our lives
No hopes to change the years gone by – yet we somehow survive
Apology given too late – for actions of hate
Today the choices we make – decide our fate
Track Name: Feed The Machine
Feed The Machine
Music: N. Da Silva
Lyrics: N. Da Silva/S. Westbrook

This is a compromise
Campaigns made of lies
A system that tries to be fair in “His” eyes
But should we realize
The consequences in disguise
A silent path to our demise

Power and greed, that is the dream
Feed The Machine, and slowly bleed

See them starve, and feel nothing now
See them cry, fear but don’t ask why
Add on, add on more gain
Add on, add on more pain
Add on, add on more fear
Add on, and disappear

Downward we go, never to return
Just like the earth below, and the fuel we burn
Addiction always desires for more
Always more, more, more, more

Fear on the screens, that’s all we see
Consume and breed, that’s all we breathe
Power and greed, that is the dream
Feed The Machine, and slowly bleed

See them starve, and feel nothing now
See them cry, fear but don’t ask why
Add on, add on more gain
Add on, add on more pain
Add on, add on more fear
Add on, and disappear

See them starve, and feel nothing now
See them cry, fear but don’t ask why
See them starve, and feel nothing now
See them cry, fear but don’t ask why
Power and greed, that is the dream
Feed The Machine, and slowly bleed
Add on, add on more gain
Add on, add on more pain
Add on, add on more fear
Add on, and disappear
Track Name: Stand And Fight
Stand And Fight
Music: N. Da Silva
Lyrics: N. Da Silva/S. Westbrook

For you and I will see
The world can often be the
Hand of greed that takes our right to breathe
In silent misery
Slander bends our dreams
Telling us to feed on the machine

No science can silence
The blind sickness of mankind – will never see
No violence can silence
The right to express our mind – we will stand and fight

Green covers blacket me
And soon it becomes me
It’s a curse that no one sees
It’s hard to take the lead
It sees our every deed
Telling us to feed on the machine

No science can silence
The blind sickness of mankind – will never see
No violence can silence
The cries of our conscious minds – when we have to decide

No science can silence
The blind sickness of mankind – will never see
No violence can silence
The cries of our conscious minds
No violence can silence
The right to express our mind – we will stand and fight

Track Name: Pull The Trigger
Pull The Trigger
Music: N. Da Silva
Lyrics: S. Westbrook/N. Da Silva

If this is me, then who am I?
If I don’t speak, then who will try?
To be like them is where we end
A revolution to defend

Dark shadows on the earth
Cast light to break the curse

No time to look back on our mistakes
No crime to have ourselves left in shame
Our lives are devoted to the truth
To find all the answers to the world we knew

Last stand before we disappear
Outnumbered by the ones who fear
As we lose to the machine
Say goodbye to the fear that they create
To the values that they make

No time to look back on our mistakes
No crime to have ourselves left in shame
Our lives are devoted to the truth
To find all the answers to the earth
It’s the time for our rebirth
Say goodbye to what you see
It’s the answer that we need

No time to look back on our mistakes
No crime to have ourselves left in shame
Our lives are devoted to the truth
To find all the answers to the world we knew

Pull the trigger and say goodbye
Track Name: Global Empires Fall
Global Empires Fall
Music: N. Da Silva
Lyrics: N. Da Silva

Controlled by society
We work to fit the mould
Possessed by hypocrisy
We do as we are told

As slaves to it all
A mass-condemned befall
A suicidal call
As global empires fall

Controlled by technology
We live the need for more
Driven to insanity
Without a breath or soul

As slaves to it all
A mass-condemned befall
A suicidal call
As global empires fall

The lives we live, not willing to give
A chance to change our ways
The mind is set, mistakes we forget
Should we try, or should we be left to die?

We are the economy
The ones who have control
Death to humanity
Destroy and build no more

As slaves to it all
A mass-condemned befall
A suicidal call
As global empires fall
As slaves to it all
A mass-condemned befall
A suicidal call
As global empires fall
Track Name: Cries Of The Earth

Track Name: Without The Machine
Without The Machine
Music: B. Soares/N. Da Silva
Lyrics: N. Da Silva/S. Westbrook

Unconsciousness, a dark abyss
Government defied
Our structure decayed, complete disarray
Parliament declined
Our genocide, self-suicide
Mankind redefined
We fought for truth, not what we knew
Time to rebuild
A cycle reborn, addiction no more
Only clear thoughts
Our freedom in natural design
Autonomy strong and divine
Guilty no more
Our shelter from power and greed
Our moment to rebuild the dream
Without The Machine

No tears for the suicide – of our lives
No hopes to change the years gone by – yet we somehow survive
Apology given too late – for actions of hate
Today the choices we make – decide our fate
